Cianci Conviction Upheld

WRNI – Supporters of former Providence Mayor Buddy Cianci won't be celebrating his return to the city any time soon. By a 2 to 1 vote, a federal appeals panel has ruled there was more than enough evidence to support the corruption conviction of Cianci and two co-defendants. But the dissenting opinion is bolstering consideration of a further appeal. WRNI's Martha Bebinger reports on the latest chapter in operation plunder-dome.
